Free Admission Days in the Parks

Generally, to enter a Washington County Park by vehicle, you must display a daily or annual vehicle permit. Exceptions are the Hardwood Creek Trail and the Historic Courthouse, where no vehicle permit is required. 

Additionally, there are specific days when no vehicle permit is needed in any park: 

  • The first non-holiday Tuesday of each month.
  • The second Saturday in June (National Get Outdoors Day).
  • Earth Day.
  • The Friday after Thanksgiving.

Earth Day is an annual event celebrated around the world on April 22. On Earth Day, people gather, volunteer and celebrate planet Earth to support environmental protection. 

Washington County will waive daily vehicle permit fees allowing free entry to Washington County Parks on April 22 in honor of Earth Day.
